of telegraphing this week from mr. romney, that maybe he will put some details into his economic talk. he's started to float some new ideas about taxes that he never floated before. my question is whether or not he thinks the right place to unveil those is in a debate setting. surprise the president with something he's never said before or if he wants to save that stuff for a more controlled environment. that will tell us as much about his temperament and his strategy as it will about his plans. let me bring in lawrence o'donnell, chris. lawrence is in the spin room tonight, which i think has yet to begin to spin. lawrence, what do you think the expectations are on both sides tonight? >> reporter: well, rachel, in this room, there are a lot of $10,000 bets going on behind me about what the president is going to say tonight and what mitt romney is going to say tonight. i think the rules actually favor president obama because there are almost no rules. they are going to do two-minute statements, they're each going to get two minutes at the beginning of the subjects that jim leherer will int
their rallies in the battleground state of virginia. we showed you moments ago mr. romney is in the state of florida at this hour speaking at a rally there they each have a very different take on today's jobs report. >> we can do better. we don't have to stay on the path we have been on. we can do better. there was a report that just came out this morning on job creation this last month. there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. >> but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> harris: then the president went on with his familiar slogan saying governor romney supports the same policies that led to the financial crisis. the governor says he has a plan to create millions of jobs. campaign carl cammeron live in st. petersburg, florida. carl, what else is governor romney saying about the jobs numbers? >> as he continues on here today in st. petersburg, this morning he was in rural western virginia talking in coal country to miners, some of t
. he had a proem with governor romney's shirt. >> steve: look for mr. romney to wind up with a bump in the polls, because of the president's weak one. and she writes of the president. he's never been punctured before but by debays and wednesday night. if you open the window, this is what you heard. soft hiss of air departing from a balloon . she said the president is a very good politician . >> gretchen: it will be a town hall setting and that is a different environment and questioning coming from the audience. brian excellent point to bring up. i was thinking that this morning and how many people watch the debate. that was a concern that i had . had people been energized to care and listen to the differences between the two cand des. two find out more people watched the debate since 1992 was heartening. the idea that that many people wanted to come to the tv and see what was going on in the nation was heartening. >> steve: pat buchan an said it was the best one in 52 years. but pat going back to the kennedy/nixon debate. >> gretchen: people on the democratic side tried to come up w
tonight will the moderator of the presidential debate will ask mr. romney about the 47 comment. will they ask about this particular video that shows then senator obama showing that the neglect of new orleans was racial. >> down in new orleans, where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later. there is a federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the staford act and when you get federal matter you have to give a 10 percent match from the local government. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the staford act. they said this is too serious of a problem and we can't expect new york city to lebuild on its own. forget that dollar. that was the right thing to do. what is happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your staford act money? it makes no sense. trust me, the bullet hasn't been taken out. it tells me that the people down in new orleans doesn't care as much. >> steve: you can see it in the entirity in the daily caller.com. he said the people of new orleans got the shaft and people who suffered from 9/11 or
. just before the show tasta stard w we had breaking news. mr. romney how says in addition to his 20% across the board tax cuts he would help pay for that by capping tax deductions at $17,000 across the board. i want to give you a shot to comment. >> i find it strange larry, that in this moment before the debate that we are getting a revisited mathematics. it was obvious that it didn't just add up. so what they are going to do is eat into the mortgage deduction for middle class people. you know what that does for the citizens in the districts? >> nothing. >> you would rather let them keep their deductions? >> that is not one of them. the mortgage deduction is critical to the lifeline in the state of new jersey >> last one, what would you cap? can you give me one. >> in terms of second homes, property which is tremendous value i think these are things that we can look at. >> languahang on. next up our candidates are going to tackle the movement vexing issues of the election. you are not going to want to miss what they had to say. [ horn honks ] hey, it's sandra -- from accounting. pet
some debate press today before heading to a flight of fund-raisers. the president and mr. romney said to face often less than one week for the first presidential debate. both campaigns are downplaying the candid wiping of their opponents. how will these low expectations play out? with more on this, joined by ed rollins, republican strategist top boxes contributor. likewise, doing great, especially looking forward to this conversation. what is the strategy? >> you cannot play down the debate. the biggest thing left in his campaign. if you don't do well it does not matter whether you said you're not going to do well. you discord against. traditionally presidents don't do as well in debates. nobody basically stands up and makes points back-and-forth. sometimes they're hard to get going. this president is a good debater. my sense is he will be on his best. romney obviously became a very good debater. style versus substance. charismatic, a great debater. romney, livermore. also very strong in a primary debate, as you just alluded to, especially against gingrich. >> i'm sure fully ready to
. rasmussen shows how many people are for the president and how many for mr. mitt romney . rasmussen poll was accurate in 2004 and 8 getting the results according to the track being poll. 43 percent said they are certain to vote for romney and 42 percent certain vote for obama and 15 percent haven't decided . >> gretchen: that's huge. that is a dead heat report to look at the certainty of these people they are voting early right and these people who know in the debates who they will vote for. these debates are for the undecided it is a huge chunk of the population. other than voters turn out of the base. that will turn the election>> eric: that is 10-20 percent of the undisguisable and persuadable. throw that poll up one more second. in the bottom of that. likely voters. those are the polls that are most accurate and go after the likely voters . not just people who poll random people. >> steve: you and i talked about george washington university. they do a battle ground poll . barak 49 percent x. romney 47. and now he leads by 4 in the independents which is a better number for the former
romney fights back and putting president obama on defense? >> mr. president you are entitled to your own airplane and your own house but not your own facts. >> gretchen: what did he say as i drop my papers. both so you can decide. >> steve: president obama raising taxes is the only way to dig america out of the ditch. >> it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopp holes that affect only high income individuals math. it is aryth metic. >> steve: really. governor romney said cu. >> brian: this might ease your fears. free flightts to leave the country if your guy goes down. "fox and friends", we are up and we are on right now. ♪ ♪ "fox and friends". >> congratulations to you mr. president on your anniversary. i am sure this is the most romantic place you can imagine, here we me. i like pbs and big bird and you, too. i will not spend money borrowing from china to pay for it. >> american people have to ask is the reason governor rum rhumb all of the plans because they are too good. >> look, i have five boys, i am used to people saying something that is not always true a
working hard for his eelection should just quit. i don't believe he's in it to be fair. mr. romney did well, granted the media set the bar for him so low that if he didn't fall through a hole in the stage, he met expectations. perhaps the bar for the president was set too high or perhaps the man that some thought they knew back in 2008 never really existed. back then words like messiah and the new jfk were put on him, they weren't used by him. last night we saw mr. obama for what he really is, human. to think he's anything above that is unfair to the man. lisa in connecticut says i'm hoping that there is a plan to lull him and then crush him the next time with real facts, figures and no stumering or stammering. mitt romney still running on trust me. his positions keep changing. i'm not sure he gets credit for the message but the delivery was good. obama didn't have his teleprompter and looked confused and lost without it. obama has a poor record the last four years and romney had a chance to attack it without the liberal press protecting obama. pete in georgia says, don't you know? i'm
opportunities left. that would be a bad night for mr. romney. thank you, howard fineman, and steve schmidt. >>> coming up, how will we know who wins tonight's debate? it's not like there is an official scorecard but experts will look at everything. we'll give you an idea of how to look at this thing realtime. >>> and also caught on tape, yesterday "the huffington post" reported paul ryan saying 30% of americans wanted a welfare state and jumped on joe biden as well saying that the middle class has been buried. the running mates are causing some headaches. >>> plus, i have some questions of my own for the candidates. i'm going to ask michael steele and joan walsh to fill in for barack obama. can they answer questions? i'm going to show you what i'm going to be looking for. and then i'll join rachel mad do you for an hour long show for tonight's debate. join us for the full coverage. and then at midnight eastern, i'll be back for the a special late edition of "hardball," a show with lots of results. we'll tell you who won. this is "hardball," live from denver, the first presidential debate.
that in the october job report issued the first week in november, that might help mr. romney, but it is so close that friday to the following tuesday, i don't think it's going to register in people's minds if it ticks up a couple tenths of a percent. it has to be dramatic, and i don't see that happening. >> the democrats are going to get george soros to get people to stay on the sidelines for the election, so we'll be all good. >> we should make krystal the head of the dnc. up next mitt romney courting the 47%? does he think people have amnesia? the spin cycle is next as we roll on for friday, october 5th.

hahn and republican strategist mark mckinnen. i'm going to start with you, mark, because i was impressed with mr. romney's way of presenting himself. he was like an actor who came on playing a bigger role than he normally guy like a big guy, "master and commander" russell crowe. he grew when he came on stage and he stayed in character as if he wanted to do a couple more hours of it. so prepping him -- and i didn't ven that mitt romney before. that guy has not been out there. what happened with him? how did he get so ready for that thing? >> i think he and the campaign totally understood what the stakes were and they prepared and they prepared a lot. i have watched mitt romney over the years, and he has steadily improved, and, you know, people like stewart stevens and beth myers took a lot of heat over the last couple months about the campaign, but those -- i have worked with stuart before in many campaigns and he's a debate preparation fanatic and they understood that this would be an opportunity to shift the gears, to reframe the race, and one guy showed up and one guy prepared, and it showed.
bucks. mr. romney presenting a choice, four more years of this, or the american people will get to determine what kind of america they want to live in. a mitt romney america or a barak obama america. >> gretchen: so no doubt that the two teams who are preparing both of these candidates are saying a lot of time figuring out, what are the negatives about the other guy or how do you get under the skin of the other guy to make it to your advantage with the american people? so last night charles krauthammer on "special report" had his theory about how mitt romney might be able to get under the skin of president obama. >> i the his one weak point is that he is thin skinned. you occasionally will see it in a press conference and if romney can manage to get under his skin in some way, i think that actually happened in 08 one or two of the clinton debates, i think it could sort of puncture that aura that obama has. one thing that's going to help romney is that simply being on the stage is always true of the challenger. just being on the same stage as the president, instantly raises your
a third party. i voted the man not the party. when i look at what mr. romney is doing and mr. ryan is doing as opposed to what i already know about president obama, i am proud of him -- the things he is talking about as opposed to what they are talking about is about the rich getting richer as opposed to all of us being in this together. i do not have a problem paying more tax to help somebody out right now. i got where i was because of what people did prior to me. if a democrat or a republican needs a little help now, are we going to be americans and help each other out? are we going to play the race card in some situations, the money card the culture card? america is better than that. i want to see us take all of the good of everybody. host: thank you for the call. next is said joining us from georgia. the independent third party line. caller: i would like to make three or four quick points. as far as the a row corp. -- the irrelevancy of third parties, ralph nader was very relevant and florida. to the point about -- i am a libertarian. ross perot is the data kind of got me liste
mr. romney has to tell the world how will he grow america's economy compared to the miserable rate of growth that we've had for the last three and a half years. >> reporter: it's going to be an interesting debate tomorrow night. thank you so much. the president and governor romney may be taking time off the campaign trail today for debate practice but the vice presidental candidates are not. vice president joe biden spoke to voters in charlotte, north carolina a short time ago about the concerns he has over his opponent's plan for medicare, while at wong man's paul ryan's event in iowa today things took an emotional term when a veteran asked him about his social security benefits and why the government taxes the only source of income for a man who dedicated his life to defending his country. >> i served in the air force in 65 straight out of high school, and i learned in the military -- [applause] >> -- the skills that i had to take me through life. i served in grenada, and i served in iran, and i live off of social security. i live off a thousand dollars a month, and i cannot unde

's debate performance. there were also some questions about the moderator, jim lehrer, watch this. >> mr. romney, do you have a question you would like to ask the president directly about something he just said? >> jim, the president began this segment, so i think i get the last word. >> you're going to get the first word in the next segment. >> but he gets the first word of that segment, i get the last word -- >> here's a specific. >> mention the other one, let's talk the big one. >> no, let's not. >> two minutes is up, sir. >> i think i had five seconds before you interrupted me was -- >> i sometimes wonder if we even need a moderator because we had mitt romney. we should rethink that for the next debate. >> joining us now two journalists from the website dailydownload.com. lauren is the site's founder, editor and chief also former managing editor "usa today" howie is host of cnn's "reliable sources" and washington bureau chief for "newsweek" magazine. he said, this is jim lehrer, part of my moderator position was to stay out of the way of the flow and i had no problems with doing so.
, my reaction to the debate was, where is the substance, mr. romney? you are throwing around a lot of commons. is that a good debate? nobody had any plans. the president did not take credit for some of the things he is doing. second, minority communities are very scared of the voter i.d. is being glossed over that it has happened over and over again in elections. could you comment on how you are polling, and if you are involved with the hispanic and black leadership to make sure the vote gets out? >> i would disagree with the first part. i thought it was one of the more substantive debates i have seen in a while. i was watching some of the dial meters. when romney was going through his five-point plan, his numbers went straight up. i do not think it was vague, from either of them. there was a lot of specificity and substance. >> it is the most substantive debate that i can remember, in terms of policy and plans, in a long time. maybe the bar is set so low it is not hard to get over it. but i was kind of surprised. >> i thought -- i guess, what is substance these days, especially in
will save us. final question, mr. forbes, what is your enthusiasm level about the mitt romney campaign? >> i think he would be a good president and precisely because he knows what it takes to get real things done. he demonstrated the crisis manager. and so, here's my views on monetary policy it because the way i do for entitlement reform and the like, health care, not yet. this is why we get some good candidates in congress. over the years it
the ultimate swing state in the elections. which way is it going to swing, mr. dewine? >> it's going to come very very close. but romney is going to win it in a close race. >> thank you very much, mike dewine state attorney general, former state for. >>> it doesn't happen very often. it did today. the ceo of the biggest company in the usa said i'm sorry. >>> and you'll never guess where the next victoria's secret underwear store is going. hmm. more power in two. looking for a better place to put your cash? here's one you may not have thought of -- fidelity. now you don't have to go to a bank to get the things you want from a bank, like no-fee atms, all over the world. free checkwriting and mobile deposits. now depositing a check is as easy as taking a picture. free online bill payments. a highly acclaimed credit card with 2% cash back into your fidelity account. open a fidelity cash management account today and discover another reason you. we know you. we know you have to rise early... and work late, with not enough sleep in between. how you sometimes need to get over to that exit, like, rig
, at a huge rally in wisconsin, the president charged romney changed what he said. >> he may do a tap dance and a two step, but if you want to be president, then you owe the american people the truth. >> some felt mr. obama owed them a better debate. >> he looked like he was tired, drained. >> i think he didn't have practice. >> you're more worried that obama might lose now? >> no, not really. >> obama strategists hint the boss learned a lesson. >> he'll review it, if he wants to make some changes in the next debate, he'll do so. >> romney strategists claim all the change about their guy was his audience. >> people, i think saw for the first time, a lot of people, not in a 30 second attack ad or in a 12 second snip et on the news, but got to hear him indirectly. >> romney's hoping the debate strengthens his poll numbers in battleground states. tomorrow there's a new factor, a jobs report expected to help president obama by showing fewer layoffs. in denver, colorado, i'm steve handlesman, nbc bay area news. now for a look at how social media reacted to last night's debate. let's go to busine
. >> reporter: from the very beginning, mitt romney displayed a confident and commanding presence on stage, almost one-upping the president from the start. >> congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i'm sure this was the most romantic place you can imagine here with me. >> that set the tone as romney seemed to control the tempo, sometimes even serving as the moderator. >> let's get back to medicare. >> reporter: and it didn't take long for the deep philosophical disagreements to come through. first on taxes. >> now, governor romney's proposal that he's been promoting for 18 months calls for a $5 trillion tax cut on top of $2 trillion of additional spending for our military. and he is saying that he is going to pay for by closing loopholes and deductions. the problem is he's been asked over 100 times how you would close those deductions and loopholes and he hasn't been able to identify them. >> virtually everything he said about my tax plan is inaccurate. if the tax plan he described, i would say absolutely not. i'm not looking for a $5 trillion tax cut. what i've said i
ambassador is dead. mr. president, in sudan they will not allow u.s. marines to guard american soil. what do you have to say about that? >> sean: romney has got to understand, they're not going to ask these questions. it's his job to bring it up as of next wednesday. here's andrea mitchell, "nbc nightly news," and she says it's ambassador rice who was sent out with false information that we now know is false, as corroborated by a scrubbed websites at the state department to lie as as did jay carney, as did secretary clinton. watch this. >> it's very unusual for the intelligence community to make this admission. politics are clearly in play. the questions being asked are why did they get it wrong? was it because there was a cover-up or was it because they were trying to avoid acknowledging mistakes this close to an election? so there is always a political context. certainly the white house today and tonight very strongly defending susan rice, but she is in the crosshairs right now of the political argument, and this is something that is going to be pursued by republicans who have been hammeri

we go, mayor, what do you think of the debate? real quick. >> i think mr. obama got his hat handed to him in his hand with something in it. >> so he got nailed. >> he did. >> and your advice for mitt romney? >> my advice for mitt romney? keep on lying just like you did in denver. >> oh!! >> get out of here!! >> mayor brown talking right there. all right, phil matier, thanks so much. chief suhr and, of course, former mayor willie brown. >> we got to show a little love to the as, too, because that's coming up. they're on the road in detroit but they come home on tuesday. >>> all right. my in-laws are in town. >> are they. >> so we're coming into the city. >> oh, my goodness. >> all weekend long. >> it is going to be crazy in the city. there's so many things going on. we are hoping the weather will cooperate. we'll see tooler temperatures in the bay area no getting around that, we'll see cooler temperatures. the key will be to get rid of low clouds. it will be cool enough mixing out some low clouds. but today we are starting out with
more aide for the region or questioning our financial reliance on the region? >> i think mitt romney is perfectly suited to talk about the american dependency on oil in the middle east and the persian gulf, that this place is on fire, that mr. president, your policies do not seem to be working. they are burning the american flag. we need to be energy independent. certainly, he can turn that into that, neil. what i'm most concerned about is that he -- if you will, perform as though he's got to get a 98 in economics to obama's 95. he ought to recite the arguments he's got, and then, again, look at how all of the debates were won and lost all the way going back to nixon and kennedy. often, it was a really good one liner that summedded up someone or it was a good rebuttal, and often, it was a gaffe. neil: do you think they change the outcome, though? i mean, if you look back at 1980, you could argue the momentum was beginning to go in ronald reagan's favor. you can argue in 1960, though the race was tight, people were open to a challenger. you're smarter than i'll ever be, pat, but does
combination of factors with demonstrating effects on mr. gore's campaign. and i guess the question is, can mitt romney pull something that would really kind of just give people a page-turner on, a, his personality, which he doesn't appear to really have one beyond being a really nice person. no, i'm serious. he has to show empathy and sympathy and a connection with people that he hasn't up until now. or, steve rattner, to be more specific about his policies, which many argue he hasn't been very specific nor paul ryan. >> he hasn't been very specific. but i think his bigger problem is the first one you said. that he's got to create some sense of connectivity or relationship with the voters. i think that's really his goal as well as what we were talking about in the earlier segment of trying to bring a clear depiction of obama's policies and the fact they haven't done everything they were supposed to. >> john harwood, can he do that in a debate? is the debate the setting? that would be when you're most clenched and concerned about every word that comes out of your mouth. how do you show the
